As a Canadian mural artist one of the challenges I most enjoy is the unpredictability of subjects clients might ask for. This mural project in Edmonton's Chinatown was a beautiful example of the diversity my clients lead me towards, in this case learning about Chinese culture in Edmonton and having a small introduction to Chinese brush painting, a 6,000 year old genre.
The Great Wall of China opens this mural and curves into Edmonton, leaving two horizons. This fantasy mixture of ancient and modern places shows the diversity of the city, and influence of cultures. The mural client wanted a positive outlook of what can become of an area with time. While I was obviously influenced by Chinese artists for this project I did not strictly pursue their craft with traditional mediums, yet was influenced to create a hybrid style with modern acrylics.
I am available for freelance. Can't wait for the next exciting project! Could be yours?
